Florian Gate

in Old Town

The Florian Gate is the only original fortress gate remaining of the original eight

This attractive stone gateway is the only one of the city’s original eight gates that was not dismantled during the 19th-century modernisation. It was built around 1300, although the top is a later addition. The adjoining walls, together with two towers, have also been left standing. The Florian Gate together with the nearby Barbican form part of a museum called the City Defence Walls, and one admission ticket covers entry to both.
